Exclusive : Fanboys comic strip!

If you haven’t seen “Fanboys” yet, you’re really missing out – it’s truly better than passionfruit cheesecake!

Movie-buffs – not just ‘’Star Wars” fanatics – will love the endless array of in-jokes and cameos the film serves up. Besides a wonderful gag concerning Harrison Ford’s post-Lucasfilm career, and an amusing jab at Jar Jar Binks, there’s quite a few ‘Special Guests’ that pop up throughout the film. Obviously fans of Lucas’s phenomenally-successful space saga will appreciate seeing Carrie Fisher play a Nurse, and Billy Dee Williams play a small-town Judge a lot more than the occasional filmgoer, but I believe outsiders will still get the jokes regardless. And everyone and anyone will appreciate the slightly self-depreciating Bill Shatner cameo – it’s wonderful.

In time, I believe Kyle Newman’s film will be seen by more and more people, and develop a cult following. It has to. While more successful films starring the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Miley Cyrus chalk up to be nothing than unmemorable background Ewoks (that’ll meet their fate tree-first), Fanboys is Chewbacca – funny, ferocious, fuzzy and in it for the long haul. And who doesn’t remember him at the end of the day, right?

The film, which hits DVD stateside on 5/19, will be promoted in an ongoing ComicSpace series titled “Fans” on 5/7 and again on 5/14, but we have your first look at one of the comic strips!
